Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1/4 25% Pearl Harbor (2001) Even the much-vaunted depiction of the Japanese attack, while often visually arresting, still suffers from over-frenetic editing and more emphasis on adventure thrills than befits the tragedy of Pearl Harbor.‐ Christian Science Monitor

1/4 3% Battlefield Earth (2000) The film starts well with interesting comic book-style camera angles, but it never generates enough tension due to preposterous plot holes and liberal borrowings from other movies.‐ Christian Science Monitor

C 29% Eye of the Dolphin (2007) This indie, a Flipper for tweens, boasts winning roles by Bogie and Bacall, a pair of dolphins. The human actors don't fare as well.‐ Christian Science Monitor

B+ 32% Click (2006) Click ventures into unexpectedly pensive territory and even becomes emotional. (That word has never before been used in conjunction with an Adam Sandler comedy.) Sandler, usually a callow actor, has never been less remote.‐ Christian Science Monitor

C- 16% Underworld: Evolution (2006) For all the scenes of gory mayhem, you'll find more suspense watching the Winter Olympics curling event.‐ Christian Science Monitor

B+ 40% End of the Spear (2006) Though the final steps in Mincayani's awakening are crudely sketched, the film's conclusion will stir even the nondevout.‐ Christian Science Monitor

3/4 39% Sahara (2005) The secret ingredient that makes this handsome thriller so enjoyable is the chemistry between Alpha-male McConaughey and zany Zahn.‐ Christian Science Monitor

3/4 65% Fever Pitch (2005) The film centers on someone obsessed with a sports team, but the story's universality lies in the way that it can act as a metaphor of a variety of stumbling blocks in a relationship.‐ Christian Science Monitor

2/4 55% Cellular (2004) Dilutes any suspense by cramming its plot with contrivances.‐ Christian Science Monitor

2/4 25% The Princess Diaries 2 - Royal Engagement (2004) Lazily plotted Bachelorette for tweens.‐ Christian Science Monitor

1/4 24% Raising Helen (2004) Great premise, but the ensuing trials and tribulations -- not to mention hapless attempts at comedy -- are ... off-key.‐ Christian Science Monitor

0/4 44% Connie and Carla (2004) The screenplay feels as padded as a drag queen's dress.‐ Christian Science Monitor

1/4 44% Good Boy! (2003) It's a wonder that the genre, started by the marvelous Babe, has any currency left after Cats and Dogs and Snow Dogs.‐ Christian Science Monitor

0/4 24% Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2003) Croft's quest is to find Pandora's Box before a mad scientist can get there first, open it, and unleash a series of second-rate special effects upon an unsuspecting world.‐ Christian Science Monitor
